The record for most home runs in a season in the major leagues was 73, which Barry Bonds hit with the help of ‘steroids’ in 2001.
Aaron Judge of the New York Yankees, who hit 62 home runs last year, the most in the American League, is a record that could not even be attempted. In the ‘clean era’ past the ‘steroid era’, Bonds’ home run record is bound to be considered impregnable. This means that regardless of whether records are worth acknowledging, it is only in terms of numbers.
Is ’73’ really a number that can’t be reached? New York Mets big shot Pete Alonso is drawing attention as he is showing an unusual home run pace in the early season.
Alonso hit his ninth home run of the season in an away game against the San Francisco Giants held at Oracle Park in San Francisco on the 21st (Korean time). It is the most home runs in April in Mets history.
In the top of the 4th inning, when the score was 0-0, Alonso lightly pulled the inside sinker at 92.6 mph on the 6th pitch against San Francisco starter Sean Mania and lightly crossed the left wall as Francisco Lindor reached base with a hit ball. Launch angle 25 degrees, exit velocity 104 mph, distance 366 feet.
The Mets scored five runs in the fourth inning with Alonso, Eduardo Escobar’s two-run home run and Brandon Nemo’s timely double. 메이저사이트
In the 7th inning, with a 6-4 lead, Alonso hit 2 RBIs on 2nd and 3rd base, widening the score to 8-4, putting a wedge in the game. On this day, Alonso swung a hard hit with 2 hits and 4 RBIs in 4 at-bats. The Mets won 9-4, and Alonso’s go-ahead home run in the 4th was the final blow.
He is the sole leader in home runs in both leagues. Alonso, who recorded a batting average of 0.286 (22 hits in 77 at-bats), 19 RBIs, and 17 runs scored, and an OPS of 1.024, ranked second in the NL in RBI, second in runs scored, and eighth in OPS.
If Alonso’s current pace, which has played in all 20 games played by the team, is applied to the entire season, it is calculated that he has hit 73 home runs. Coincidentally, this is Bonds’ 2001 record.
